Start Something New with Free Shipping

Something about the end of August makes we want to start new things. I am many years out of primary school but I still have an urge to go out and buy a shopping cart full of clean notebooks and a box of crayons. But even though I don't have a new school year to look forward to, I am excited to get started on a few new weaving projects!

Mirrix Looms: Looms To Grow With

When you first decide to take on something new, be it a sport or craft or hobby, you have to decide early on how much money you want to invest in your new commitment. 

When I started doing yoga a few years ago I was using a paper-thin mat I found in my closet. After about a week of sore knees I realized if I was going to spend $100 a month on classes, I might as well get a nice mat. I ended up getting a fairly high-end mat that is still in great condition many hundreds of uses later. Looking back, choosing a good mat once I'd committed to my practice instead of investing a little less in a not-so-good one was a great choice. 

If I were a beginner looking for a tapestry or bead loom, I would take a similar approach to loom buying.

The simple art of sampling

I simply love my Mirrix Loom, I can't stress that fact enough!  Recently I received the Spencer Treadle attachment for my Zach loom.  I must admit, it stayed in the box for a few weeks after it arrived and I was so anxious to take the time to attach it to my loom.  Life just got in the way! Work was crazy and then I had vacation with my family in the Outer Banks.  The first night we were home from vacation my hubby and I put it onto my loom ... it was such an easy process!

There is now a new video created by another Mirrix Loom fan, Janna Marie Vallee and her new video on attaching the Spencer treadle is amazing! If you missed her post, you can catch it here on the blog at http://blog.mirrixlooms.com/blog/installing-the-spencer-power-treadle.  She takes you easily through the installment process and before you know it your Spencer Treadle is ready for weaving!  It makes the weaving process move quickly and easily!  I consider it an enhancement to my weaving life!

Believe in Yourself (A Mirrix No Warp Ends Project)


I have to say, for me this was a NEW experience!!!  I have used looms before, and this is now my 2nd creation with the Big Sister Loom...but I have never used the No Warp Ends Kit on ANY loom!!  So, for me this was some trial and errors, but mostly just FUN!!

So, off I went!  I designed a pattern, put out the beads and was off to warp!

Strength in the Struggle

Hello again! So much to talk about today. So much to catch up on since I last blogged! Let’s begin, and above all, let’s hope it makes sense. :)

I’ve been busy acquainting myself with my new loom; and as you know from my last blog, I am a newbie when it comes to the life of Mirrix-ing. When my loom first arrived overwhelmed would be an understatement. Looking back I am not quite sure what made me so afraid of beginning? There aren’t realllllyyy that many parts, there aren’t a million tools involved—yet it took me several ‘attempts’ to actually get started. And by ‘attempts’ I mean I opened the box, and looked at it…and decided I needed to take a break, and breathe. Removed it from the box, and decided that maybe if I lay everything out neatly, then things will flow from there. Oh! Perhaps if I name her, we’ll become more familiar, some sort of synergy will be achieved, and I’ll be on my way. FOLKS. I LITERALLY NAMED MY MIRRIX LOOM 'PEARL'. It's ok to laugh. Why was I having such a hard time just *starting* to put my loom together?
